President Trump has laid out in detail his potential nominees to the Supreme Court. Later this week he will formally nominate a new Supreme Court Justice. Meanwhile, Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden refuses to announce his list despite an earlier promise to do so.
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Sunday said he won’t release his list of prospective Supreme Court nominees until he is elected, giving off a set of reasons he believes “could influence that person’s decision” ahead of the November election despite pressure from both sides him to do so. . . .
However, Biden pledged in June to release his list of potential Supreme Court nominees, telling reporters that his campaign is “putting together a list of a group of African American women who are qualified and have the experience.” He added that the list wouldn’t release until each nominees are vetted but declined to give a timeline of when the list would be revealed.
The liberal group Demand Justice released its own shortlist of 17 Black women it says would make ideal justices, calling on Biden to follow Trump’s lead in releasing a list.Read more

We've reached a point in our history where, to the mainstream media and liberals, the values of freedom and liberty, so fundamental to our nation, have become controversial and even "racist." In honor of the 233rd anniversary of the signing of the Constitution today, both President Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr gave strong defenses of America's founding principles, which are enshrined in the Constitution.Read more
In recent years, the Electoral College has been under attack. A total of 16 jurisdictions have signed on to the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact which would ultimately render the Electoral College useless. Signatories have pledged to cast their electoral votes for whoever wins the national popular vote once the Compact has been signed by enough states to reach 270 electoral votes. But what would actually happen if the Electoral College was abolished? Safeguard: An Electoral College Story takes a look at that question and explains the history behind the institution.Read more

To follow up on yesterday, we thought we would break down some details of President Trump’s new list of judges. President Trump released his list because voters deserve a clear understanding of a candidate’s vision of the direction of the Supreme Court. Vice President Biden needs to explain what kind of judges he would select, for as President Trump stated: “Unfortunately, there is a growing radical-left movement that rejects the principle of equal treatment under law. If this extreme movement is granted a majority on the Supreme Court, it will fundamentally transform America without a single vote of Congress.”
Briefly on the new list. It includes three Senators, Tom Cotton, Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley, who are very well known and leading conservatives. Instead let’s first focus on the current judges on the list:Read more
This afternoon, President Trump announced 20 additional distinguished attorneys and judges to the list of nominees he would consider for any future Supreme Court vacancy. Polling showed that then-candidate Trump's list in 2016 was important to many voters who supported him, and he kept his promise of choosing off the list when he nominated Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh to the Court. Further, President Trump selected from his list for many of his highly qualified nominees to lower federal courts during his first term, providing unprecedented transparency regarding judicial nominations from a presidential candidate.
By contrast, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has not released a list, nor has he indicated that he will release one, leaving voters to wonder whom he would consider for any Supreme Court vacancy. Would a President Biden choose off the troubling Demand Justice list or the secret Alliance for Justice list? Both possibilities should terrify any American who values the rule of law.Read more
